Delivered in 2017, Olster utilizes triangular sloping roof wood construction which takes into account the local flora and fauna material use and blends into the surrounding wooded environment. The timber facade also provides new shelters for birds through the integration of box habitats in the roof. The implementation of this timber construction on a large water station shows a priority to blend with the environmental context as well as more sustainable construction. This project won 2017 Roof of the Year Award.
